I loved the main character Jackson. It was the first time that I related more to the male character. Don't get me wrong, there were things I liked about Jackson's love interest- though at times I wanted to speak openly of her love for him- but it was Jackson that intrigued me the most. I loved the story line: the idea of three men forming an operation to break up human traffickers doesn't sound exciting but I was mesmerized by their strength and their purpose. I also really loved the reader, particularly how he read Jackson; he great with the voices in fact.
The beginning, the books unfolds in an interesting way, the introduction of Arizona and, of course, the culmination of the drama toward the end.
Excellent, excellent, excellent. He was able to read all the characters so well. I already mentioned my love of his "Jackson" voice but he also did a great job with the females. I dislike when male readers change there pitch of female readers. Frangione differentiated the characters by timbre and accent. I want to hear more from this reader.
A sexy action-packed love story that will have you savoring every minute
I bought this on the recommendation of another listener. Thank you!
I bought this book based on raving review from another audible listener. I have to confess that I searched for a biker book after watching Season 1 of Sons of Anarchy- it goes down hill from there but the first season peaked my interest in biker culture. This book is awesome. Great sex scenes. I loved the whole family vibe of the Reapers bike club. I liked getting both perspectives from the major characters, Marie and Horse (whose nickname is truly hilarious). I also enjoyed the reader- great male voices. It's a great story of love, trust and family. I only wish that there were other books in this series.
I listened to this book in 2 days. I was absolutely hooked. I love how Gladwell makes you think. His writing is clear, concise and easy to follow while tackling complicated ideas. He persuasively presents research that makes you question main stream assumption. I was shocked when the audio book ended- I could have kept listening to more David and Goliath examples. I was left feeling strangely inspired but sad that the book had ended
I don't know why I became so obsessed with this story. The premise is simply enough. I think it's the characters that were so intriguing : Casey, the undercover detective, her boyfriend Sam, Frank, Casey's former boss, Lexi, the center of the story, the four suspects, Daniel, Abby, Justin and Raph, living a seemingly utopian life together. I finished listening to the book in 2 days over a long drive and am still thinking about it. I even had to restart it, just to reconnect to the narrator. I loved the reader, the story, the description, the location- I don't know anything about Dublin- and the authors language. It's one of few times that wish I was part of book club or class only so I could discuss the story with other readers. It got to me that much. I highly recommend this audio book. I loved it and intend to check out other books in the series.
I absolutely loved this book and I've read my share of vampire novels. I fell in love with Merit: she's smart, funny, beautiful and strong. And the beautiful vampire, Ethan who changes her to save her life? Delicious. From the start you want them to hook up. Watching Merit quickly embrace her new life and enter the highly political life of vampires in Chicago is intriguing. I couldn't put this one down!
I really enjoyed this book, especially the story. I'm a sucker for a good romance but liked that Carr had some depth to her characters: you could relate to Sarah's reluctance to entering a relationship with Cooper and you could see why Cooper fell so hard for her. I also liked the setting for the story, a small town on the Oregon Coast and its tight-knitted community. There is an emphasis on the importance of family, community and friendship. I also enjoyed the narrator. A very enjoyable read.
I was new to the world of Angels. Figured it was time to try something new. I was reluctant to enter the world of vampires before becoming a Sookie Stackhouse reader, so now I try to stay open to all paranormal adventures. I loved the main character Annabelle: she's strong, saucy and sarcastic. Zacharel is sexy and strong (how I like my male characters) and a bit broken. They both are for that matter. I'm a sucker for any sort of magical powers and love of good fight especially when justice is involved. I also liked the authors commentary on insane asylums and mental illness; without getting too preachy about it, you're left questioning the treatment of the mentally insane. I will definitely continue reading this series and am excited to add Angels to my list of paranormal reading.
Is it worth the credit? Definitely. It's a little violent at the beginning but once you get past that part of the story, it's a great read.
I picked this book because I love Harris' Sookie Stackhouse series. Admittedly, I haven't read a mystery in a while. I liked the story, definitely got caught up in the drama and was intrigued by the relationship between the main character, Harber Connelly and her brother.
But I found the story dark and weirdly depressing, not sure why.
I definitely wanted to finish the book, got a little confused by the conclusion- I had to rewind a few times but I rationalize it was because I was cleaning and multitasking during the read.
Is it worth the credit? yes. Have a bought another book in the series? No so far.
A bit surprised because I'm such a huge fan of Harris' other series, as I mentioned before.
I picked this book based on a listener's review. I was hooked within minutes. I loved the main character, Jocelyn; somehow she really pulled me in. All of the loss she had experienced in her young life, how could you not want her to find love. And her strong, funny exterior was very entertaining. This is one of the few romance books that also had me laughing. Braden was beautiful and seductive; I loved his determination to break through Jocelyn's tough exterior. I could hardly put this one down. Definitely worth the credit!
So I started this book assuming I'd be locked into it and speed through it in a few days. I liked the characters, the plot and the premise but it wasn't as riveting as I had hoped.
That said, I did enjoy it. The idea that a drunken hook up could turn into something more is plausible and I definitely wanted the main characters to find love. I felt more of a connection with the male character Ridge than Abigail whose stubbornness was grating at times. I haven't really officially entered the werewolf realm much, so this book was a nice taste. Overall I enjoyed the book and in a way it was nice to have an audio book that didn't completely disrupt my life.
